Gamers unhappy with Facebook's Oculus deal

Tech Yeah! Facebook moves into virtual reality

Facebook's $2 billion deal to buy virtual reality gaming gear maker Oculus may be a smart bet for the social network, but some gamers and investors alike don't seem too happy with the move.

That's at least partly because Facebook hasn't had much luck with hardware, and it's still unclear what kind of changes Facebook could make to Oculus' Rift virtual reality headset, according to Sherri Smith, senior staff writer at Laptop Mag and Tom's Guide.
